CHILDREN at Finchingfield Primary School were tickled pink for the day as they raised over £700 for charity.

All the pupils wore pink on Friday - a number going one step further by sporting pink hairstyles - to raise money for the breast cancer campaign, Wear It Pink Day.

The school's PTA also held a coffee morning which was attended by a number of craft and pamper stalls.

Headteacher Paula Hagan said: "It's an incredible result for a small school and the money was raised in just under two hours.

"We are grateful to the support which local people and local companies gave us in supplying cakes and raffle prizes.
